Some of the world’s priciest properties have been forsaken by their owners, including royal residences, grand country houses and luxurious ranches.

Completed in 1990, the property was dubbed ‘Southyork’ and the ‘Dallas Palace’ due to its uncanny resemblance to the ranch house in 1980s soap. Other commentators likened it to an out-of-town Tesco supermarket, while the ever-diplomatic Duke of Edinburgh reportedly described Sunninghill Park as looking like “a tart’s bedroom”.
